    The Praying Man

    Bienvenido N. Santos

    Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 1982
    “Even while I was going through the final drafts of my novels Villa Magdalena and The Volcano, written more than five years before their publication in 1965, I was already thinking of the dramatic possibilities of the idea of dwelling in the same man both the need to pray and the tendency to prey on others. I finished the first draft in Iowa City in the summer of 1967. In its present form, The Praying Man is a much shorter revised version.” —Bienvenido N. Santos, November 26, 1981
